Good work, nicely explained

My friend Rose Goslinga has been working to create affordable insurance for African farmers. This is not only exceedingly good and valuable work, but I’ve just discovered this Poptech talk she gave about it a couple of years ago.

I think it’s quite brilliant, because, while I haven’t heard her give a talk before, I remember Rose as a quiet, humble lass who I wouldn’t have considered a likely natural public speaker. But I can think of few if any talks I’ve ever seen which convey their message so simply and effectively in under five minutes. If you don’t watch it because you’re interested in how technology can help the poor, watch it as a lesson in public speaking done right.
